I would advise anyone with children or who is of a nervous disposition to take care when viewing this channel, even during the day. They often show close ups of things like the corpses of murder victims etc. I'm surprised that a complaint hasn't been made to Ofcom.
I'm sure you could be the man for the job .

It launched today on Freesat on 177.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

Looks like GOLD could well be coming to Freesat. UKTV usually put their channels onto Freeview before making them FTA and it now has a licence to broadcast on Freeview.

​Sporty Stuff (appears to be owned by Information TV) is now testing with Freesat data.

Re: One or two new channels coming to Freesat.

I wonder what sort of "Sporty Stuff" they're thinking of.

It had a schedule yesterday when I looked on the Freesat website. I'll copy'n'paste what I wrote on the Changelog thread compiled from the shows listed on it.

"Sporty Stuff TV has appeared on Ch 250.
This is showing eSports, Sailing, Gokarting, Triathlon, Mountain Biking and Rallying looking quickly through today's schedule. No live sport, just prepackaged highlights by the looks of things."

Oddly it's not on Sky. Maybe they couldn't get a EPG place for some reason?

That is strange. Though there have been Freesat exclusive channels before, I suspect it will turn up on Sky within the next few days.
